Frequency existance

  1. Oct 24, 2007 #1
    Does all 'matter' pop in and out of existance at a very rapid rate?
    That is, am I "here" in, say, a trillionth nanosecond, and then "not here", then back again?

    Where did you get such an idea? I would think the answer is clearly "NO".

    Great, thanks for answering the question.
    The reason I had the idea was with respect to how a AC sine wave passes through a "zero" point of potential as it alternates, but you've shown me that this does not happen with matter.

    Thanks.
